Nothing says long term love like wedding tattoos. Or, say you eschew the institutional confines of traditional weddings, nothing says long term love like permanent ink that symbolizes an everlasting commitment to one another. Any way you look at it, the allure of an inked-on tattoo is perfect for letting the world know you are in love.
More couples than ever are finding new ways to express their love. From same sex marriage support in the Supreme Court, to increasing awareness around transgender rights due to Caitlyn Jenner's transition, there's more space in our society to love who you want, any way you want.
